With the 2017/18 football season drawing to its close, there two games left, one Sunday the other middle of the following week. That means a little more cruising, further down the Macclesfield and back on to the Trent and Mersey, but and I still going have to make sure I am in walk distance to the nearest train station. As I down to work a few other things that are taking place at the Manchester City Stadium.
How I want it to is almost the identical way it normally works, Starting at Furness Vale I get the train into Manchester walk from the station to work do my shift and getting then the train home to Ezri, then with the free days more her along the canal. That’s a simple thing to do when the football is in the afternoon or early morning even the European championship matches can just about be done, as long they don’t end up being things like extra time and penalties. As the last train is at 10 past 11 at night.
However 99% of the concerts that happened at Manchester City Stadium have a curfew of 11 o’clock or 10 o’clock add a hour to make sure everyone has left then we can go home ourselves. That takes the whole thing to 12 midnight and one missed train a long walk to Ezri in the dark 5 hours plus.
I could move Ezri into the the center of the city to new Islington Marina/moorings which I have done in the past it cuts down the walk to Ezri to five minutes no really five minutes, I would be doing that this year to but for three things.
One) the last information I have on new Islington Marina it’s that the permanent residence there the middle of a dispute with Manchester Council about the building work that is taking place around them. Which I don’t want any part of
Two) Cost, as new Islington Marina is run by urban splash development there is a small fee. Nothing really excessive but it would feel like spending my money before I had earned it and as I intend to take out of the water this year for blacking and pay for a new BSS I do need to save.
Three) Marple Locks, are still under repair as when they came to begin the winter moorings one of the wall of the Lox halfway Up caved In on them and they had to basically rebuild the whole thing. Now the latest news on the reopening the locks May 25th one day after I start work on concerts (running of 5 days in a row) so unless Ezri can move on her own there is no way we can make into the center of Manchester.
I am quite sure of a workable solution yet, I can move towards Marple and there are two places I can be which would cut down the commute and hopefully I wouldn’t miss the train. But if I go beyond Marple the time both ways get stretched somewhat considerably. it does make the walk 3 hours if I miss the train.
But that’s all the boring stuff when that’s all taken care of I plan to start small snapshot blogs and vlog 10 minute reads about were Me and Ezri are simple history bits or trip vlogs and if the weather is bad I have another idea which is just a bit of fun.
Anyway that’s how me and Ezri are doing I think that covers about everything. But for now thank you for reading and see all soon.
